And this is why I stay in relationships…

I forgot what I’m like when I’m single. Even though I stay the same fun loving fool, I become a neurotic mess when it comes to women. I haven’t had to call a girl for the first time in years. I am terrible on the phone, EB and I once had a convo about this concerning how I sweat like a slave and use notes a la Costanza when I’m first talking to a girl…yes I am pathetic. So anyway, on Thursday I decided I was going to call a girl I had met a few times, I actually wrote about her in a prior post. I wasn’t calling to ask her out, cause until the Lady finds her new place I’m not an active player in the game, I wouldn’t disrespect her like that. Plus, the last thing I want to do right away is get into anything with anyone. I’m just trying to expand my social circle. So anyway, I get this girl’s # from a mutual friend, who actually seemed pretty excited to give up the digits. I call later that day, get voicemail, and start babbling like an idiot. I can’t even remember what I said. You know how people get into the zone, they go unconscious? Well, I went unconscious with foolishness. Needless to say, no call back that night, and even though I legitimately was just being friendly, that sinking feeling of rejection started to set in. This was absolutely silly because people have other things to do than just respond to my calls. They work late, go shopping, have laundry to do, etc…anyway, the next day, I’m calm but I keep on checking my phone to see if I missed a text message or anything. Nothing doin all day…I leave work and hit the grocery store so I could make breakfast today, which I haven’t gotten around too (I get addicted to Sell This House). While in an aisle I feel a vibration on my thigh. I grab the phone see the caller ID...badabing…it’s the girl. But by the time I pick up the call goes into voicemail. She leaves a message saying she was excited that I called and wanted to meet up, but has to baby sit on the night I was inquiring about. Not a problem, I'm just glad I got the return call. Now I have to call back since I didn’t get a chance to call her back last night, but the second call is easy…well, no it’s not…sucks to be single DCD.
